Characters in `Bobby' weave a poignant tale

Review B+

Where were you on that terrible June night when Robert Kennedy was assassinated? More importantly, what did you think after you heard about it?

Bobby is a lament of what might have been. It is not a history lesson; those looking to explore the events of June 5-6, 1968, should look elsewhere. It does not offer insight into the mind of his assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, or touch upon the myriad conspiracy theories that since have arisen. It does not delve into RFK the man, or look at the political climate or examine the times in which he lived.

Bobby (Weinstein Co.) Starring Anthony Hopkins, Sharon Stone, Lindsay Lohan, Laurence Fishburne, Freddy Rodriguez, Martin Sheen. Directed by Emilio Estevez. Rated R. Time 116 minutes.
